Question Missing kernel release for kmod-nvidia-3.2.6-3.fc16.x86_64-290.10-1.fc16.14.x86_64

Strange that nonfree-updates released the kmod update for nVidia before mainstream kernel release, below are the output of $ sudo yum update

$ sudo yum update

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Am I missing something here?

Re: Missing kernel release for kmod-nvidia-3.2.6-3.fc16.x86_64-290.10-1.fc16.14.x86_6

Yeah, I just noticed this a short time ago myself. It's quite unusual and just the opposite of what normally happens, which is that there is no updated kmod-nividia package to accompany a new kernel update.

I can only guess.... maybe they put a new kernel update in "updates", but quickly discovered it had some serious problem and pulled it. I checked in "updates-testing" to see it the new kernel was there. No. Time will only tell.
